Nate Diaz isn’t impressed with UFC president Dana White’s recent comments about him, and he made that abundantly clear on social media today.
Nate Diaz isn’t a big fan of Dana White right now. The enigmatic UFC lightweight hasn’t stepped into the cage since his second fight against Conor McGregor in one of the highest-drawing cards in the promotion’s history. Diaz has stated a few reasons why this is, saying that the UFC “put him on the shelf” and that he’s more interested in “big time fights”. But White says it’s because both Nate and brother Nick Diaz are turning down fight offers.
“We keep offering Nate fights and he keeps turning them down. Nick too.”
Well, Nate got wind of what White said, and responded on social media in a way that only a Diaz brother can:
This fucker can’t stop making shit up about me and I haven’t been offered any fights except the one Iaughed at pic.twitter.com/7gRskEXEP9

MMA Fighting reported that Diaz turned down a fight with former lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez recently. This isn’t the first time that Diaz has taken to social media to vent his frustration about fight offers. Last month he was very succinct in regards to a bout apparently offered to him:
Lol at your fight…
